I used to be very uncomfortable showing any kind of emotion. I thought it was weak, and found life being much easier to go around not giving a fuck. Clearly, in those moments I would only think about myself. I subconsciously kept this attitude for years. It all started from feeling abandoned as a child. I grew up without my father, and didn't know how much of that actually affected me until this year. Here's the thing though, everything you feel matters. As a child you mirror what you see and hear up until about the age of 7. Those things can get really deep into your consciousness and it's up to (you) to release what no longer serves you. It took for many circumstances to get my attention. I resorted to drugs and alcohol with the attempt to find myself in those activities. Those high moments are only temporary. You will soon have to deal with yourself if you want to make any lasting changes. So on this day (1/1/17) I made a decision that I would do something different. At the time I didn't know exactly how I would start. Two weeks later I was introduced to a community of positive people. I also began my healthy active lifestyle. It took me a few months to actually take it seriously. The old me was trying to come back into my life, but in order to grow you must detach from who you think you are. So I got my health together first. Then it hit me, "what else can I change"? A year later I developed the courage to face some of my fears. The resistance is very real behind change. It's worth it! I learned to forgive all of life including myself for those feelings that kept me hostage. You take your power back when you decide to take 100% full responsibility. Is there something you'd like to release?
Feel free to comment if this resonates.
Crossing the river she goes💓
There are often days where I sit, blank, staring at my phone or computer screen.
What am I even going to write about?
I never really was HUGE into posting on social media...
I have my pictures I would upload in albums so when I was away, friends and family could see what I was up to. But my posts come in waves.
I never was big into tagging where i was or posting where i was because i never wanted anyone to know.
I would rather stay more private than letting you know my whereabouts this very second.
I thought letting people know every detail of what you're doing was a crazy thing to do but people are so into it.
People want to see how you're living and want to see what you do on the daily so they can relate or even so that they can argue🙄
I'm still getting used to having to post, remembering to post. If you're a part of this digital world, it's necessary and I think that's one of my worst struggles....
I'll get there, it's all about improving😊.
All about the uncomfortable 💫

Yesterday when heading out for my run, I got the goosebumps as a thought crossed my mind: “Why? Why put yourself through this everyday?” I’m not crazy motivated like I used to be, this fades naturally. I’m pretty much driven, obsessed, and have disciplined myself through habit to run everyday. It’s on the same level as eating & sleeping.
I’m nothing special- I created this grind through habit. Any human can change their life; it really is as simple as creating habits. Habits become a way of life eventually. I’m not fast or elite by no means; if that was my why, I would have quit long ago. When I realize how far I’ve come; I then know my why and that’s to plug away and make progress. Finish times aren’t the best measure of that. Getting out there consistently for pure enjoyment of passion, that’s the best measure of progress in my book.
I know I make these posts often about following your passion and maybe you skim over or think I’m crazy, dumb, lost, privileged, etc. I don’t care what people think of me. But I think it’s important to make time for doing something you love and never letting it slip away. Be selfish, Focus on you, Become the best version of you, and then Help & Encourage others to do the same. One life; let’s be kind, positive, and strive towards being our true self. Be real all the time. ✌️ ❤️ ➕
With Canadian legalization in place for tomorrow let’s get a quick update. Up over the last week, will it pop tomorrow?

Hi 🙂 Here‘s a smile I‘m throwing right into your face 🙃🌼
Whatever dreams you have, you can make it happen if you will. I feel you so much when you think it’s hard and it costs you so much effort and energy to take the steps.
What motivates me most is to imagine myself as an old lady (a very sweet old lady 👵🏻) having lived her life and being about to die, asking myself if there was anything I regret. I deeply believe I would rather REGRET the chances I didn’t take than having hold back from something I wished to do but was to afraid.
The question is: Can I ever forgive myself that I didn’t even try?
We are students of life. We should make the most of it. And instead of saving „Just go for it“ pins on Pinterest or following and silently admiring people on Instagram who actually GO for it, we should f*cking go for it OURSELVES. We were given this life to CREATE and to experience ourselves FULLY.
Don’t listen to your mind - it is only making up limits that in fact do not exist. You can just do it. Like that.
I have three sons. 💙 Three boys that I’m doing all I can to help them be three incredible MEN in the future.
This is no small feat.
Conversations start young.
I’m strict when it comes to their behavior and words they choose.
“Boys will be boys” are words I’ve never spoken.
They are free to share and express their emotions.
Empathy, honesty, and respect are huge.
I am grateful beyond words for their father who is a true example of a “good one.” They have a kick ass role model and man to look up to.
My time with them is relatively short. I am already so proud of who they are and where they are going. I cannot WAIT to see who they become.
For now, I am a #boymom- but I am not raising boys. I am raising men. 💙.
Just in case my queens needed a reminder .
Absolutely nothing is impossible!
It's very easy to feel as if we are not growing, if we are not getting instant results i.e. automatic ally meeting our income goals , getting large amount of business opportunities or an overflow of ideal clients .
We always have to understand small progression is better than no progression at all.
Consuming information, getting a plan together , networking , saving, creating content are all contributing to your success .Enjoy your journey, you got this beautiful!
Success is already yours!
Sun sign is your core. When our heart and mind are at faults you can point the finger at your sun sign holding its ground. Moon sign is your emotional reactions and set the tone for how you cope with situations. Ascendant guides how others perceive you as well as your own personal appearance. Abbreviated version.. your Sun is strong in your morals, Moon is strong in your emotions. Ascendant is strong in your defense.
With that all being said, remember our star signs are just a part of our story. Experience and environment play a huge part in our journey. #empath#shaman#astrology#sunsign#moonsign#ascendant#rising#growth ☆ #trueacceptance is achieved with #trueauthenticity
✨...and I was so flattered. (I think I was in another life but I digress.)🔮However, I am a person who notices details. She had a real estate manual in her car & I could tell she was studying for her exam. She seemed really sad....and kind of scared. She mentioned her child & I could just sense she wasn’t in a good place.
I told her to get away from whoever was holding her back. She teared up & asked me if I was a psychic. She then said she was working on it & was going to make it happen.
Everyone is trying to figure something out. I am attempting to grow every day, that doesn’t always 💯 happen, but if no effort is made, no change will happen.

The Resistance is a powerful force. It’s been conditioned into you since your very first breath; and it will surround you until your last. But The Resistance can be overcome and beaten. It takes time, endurance, emotional strength and mental toughness; but it’s a battle that can and must be won.

Don’t just “break out” of your comfort zone, grow it!
Do things that are hard, things that challenge you and scare you! Do things that make your heart skip a beat, and set your soul on fire at the same time!
They say nothing good is ever accomplished within the confines of a comfort zone, but I feel that’s not entirely true...Nothing good is ever accomplished without a little challenge and growth. And, by doing things that challenge and scare you a little, things you once thought impossible, you’re actually causing your comfort zone to stretch and grow larger, ultimately boosting your self confidence and opening doors you didn’t even know existed.
When I first started lifting three years ago, I couldn’t handle much more than a 5 # dumbbell. Today, I can hoist this 65 # bar onto my shoulders for Heavy Barbell Squats. It’s takin a lot of hard work, persistence, and patience...No, it’s not super heavy by many stands, and it is a little messy, but for a stay-at-home mom who trains exclusively in her small bedroom with nothing but free weights and crappy lighting, it’s not too damn bad!
My point is, keep working hard every day. Accept your limitations, but push your boundaries. Whenever you start to feel comfortable and confident, try something new! You’ll fail along the way, Lord knows I have, but you’ll also succeed. And, one day, you’ll find yourself in a place doing something you never dreamed possible.

So often we hear “you’re so different” and it makes us question the path we’ve chosen. People say the word ‘different’ as if it’s such a bad thing. Instead, choose to say you’ve grown and are flourishing into the woman you were always meant to be.
It’s scary but exciting and I, myself, am just starting to allow myself to surrender to all the positive vibes and movements.
